The England based dream-rock duo Lost Horizons release their début LP Ojalá tomorrow.
A fifteen track album of fragile compositions, which like a spiders spinning silk, encases the listener in delicate threads, that transfix.
With numerous guest players joining individual tracks this is an album that offers a variety of texturing and is best played when there is time to fully appreciate the quietly flowing layers of the songs.
I Saw The Days Go By, featuring Marissa Nadler on vocals, is the ninth track.
The latest single to be released Citizen is a decent introduction to an outfit who deliver a sound that is able to unify audiences with different musical tastes including those who may initially contemplate jazz as ‘not their thing’.
The swaggering jazz is tempered by funky hip-dips delivered in an easy to engage tempo and as the track develops so the listeners discover themselves becoming more fully engaged.

The latest track to be revealed from the album – ArchiteKt oF HatE, available on bandcamp as a stand-alone single, contemplates that it is easy to be sucked in to the wall of hate and gain a sense of tribal identity by joining in with sneering derision and resultingly loosing ones own moral compass.
The Austrian, England based, folk-beat duo MonaLisa Twins release the LP ORANGE on the 29th.
A dozen track album (available directly from their website) rooted firmly in ’60s psychedelic merseybeat MonaLisa Twins deliver a selection of songs that set flight intoxicating melodies which akin to sunlight refracting through hanging crystals dapple the room with kaleidoscopes of colours that relaxes the stresses of daily life as they drift through the mind.
The sixth track is Waiting For The Waiter which is a composition that features, with the guitars, blues-harmonica.
My apologies to one and all for the delay in getting to this as this email has been with me since early this month.
